As if the scene at Surf Lodge isn't appealing enough on a Sunday evening, add in the combination of beautiful girls roaming around in little bikinis, Francesco Civetta and Holy Ghost DJing, and perfect weather, and you have yourself a cocktail party hosted by La Perla. That's where we spotted this steely number to the left (close-ups after the jump), called the Hanneke Bikini. Inspired by the "metal intersections of the most famous bridge of New York City" (we're going to go with Brooklyn on this one?), we love the architectural feel of the swimsuit's structure. It's no surprise the famous Italian lingerie company leaves little to the imagination with the "interlacing soutache" of the fabric, deep V of the top, and skimpy string bikini bottom. If that's not your style though, don't fret... La Perla's cocktail party at Surf Lodge was good for more than just dishing out free drinks: they were also showing off the latest swim-wear fashions, and there were plenty of girls in a variety of La Perla suits to show you what they have to offer. And if you're still a little unsure about the hefty price-tag, but are a big fan of the brand, think of it this way - it's one piece of La Perla you can actually wear out of the bedroom. [Suit Up!]
